Some of the biggest movers and shakers in the UAV community are strong females in tech, proving that the gender imbalance is starting to shift. From award-winning aerial photographers to content creators for The Wall Street Journal, women are disarming the drone gender gap.
In our new series highlighting women of the drone industry, we will introduce you to some female power players that are shaping the future of the UAV community – and clearing a path for more.
Meet Kelly LeClair.
As a former television news reporter, Kelly knows the significance of conveying a story visually, especially through high-quality videography. So, when she made the transition into real estate with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, she knew video would play an important role in selling her Southern California properties.
Kelly uses the DJI Phantom Pro 3 and GPC Phantom 3 Plus Case to show the landscape of homes on sale and provide potential buyers with context – lot size, proximity to the ocean, canyon, downtown, and neighboring houses. Drones allow her to tell the story of a property, educating potential buyers on the high-level intricacies of their future home, as well as capturing compelling birds-eye views of her listings.
